My experience from Delhi to Mussoorie on Bike

Let’s Begin

It was really an unusual day, I never wake up by 5 in the morning, but that day was special and well advanced plan at least we had planned for Mussorie the previous night at around 8:30PM to be precise. Christmas day, a long weekend ahead and what can be better than to have a getaway from Delhi to Mussoorie and that too with my love Royal Enfield Bullet - Classic 350.

Dug~dug~dug...

Gloves, Goggs, helmet all on and a backpack with a DSLR camera, a T-Shirt, Undies and an unforgettable wallet with some cash for my Queen Dug~Dug~Dug.

It’s around 6:15am now, and we ‘the two riders’ left for the Queen of hills, with our Queens “Bullet Rani”.

Mussoorie is almost 287 kms from Noida where we have our nests and took shelter in. So, approximately it was to take not more than 7 hours with all the halts and “Chai Paani Sutta” in the midways for us. So, we had planned to stay in Dehradun the “Christmas Day” and celebrate it in St. Francis Church.

Leave for the Queen of Hills...

Again early in the morning temperature dipped to 3 degrees in Dehradun City and Hotel receptionist advised us to wait until sunrise and leave by 8am.
Urrgh…. Have we been there to wait for sunrise? Of course NOT.
Mussoorie is around 41 kms from Dehradun and we are on. It was really really beautiful to see the unending hills. Horizons had to submit to these hills, to way far you can see, you have nothing but the tall standing hills adorned by foggy clouds.
By the time we were left with only 7kms to Mussoorie we took a halt for our first cup of Morning tea. Did some crunches there and those crunches got clicked.

We are now at the Mall road and we can see the beautiful sunrise from there. It was like the Queen(hills) is coming out with a big Red Bindi.
Couldn’t stop there for long, so again started our Dug~Dug~Dug and headed towards Company Garden, George Everest House, Jwala Devi Temple, Gun Hill, Haathi Paon and finally our destination “Kempty falls”, for which we had carried our undies so long.
It’s really amazing to ride on hills with your queen (Bullet).
For me nothing can be as beautiful as this when you are among the Queen of hills watching the freezing Himalayan ranges with your own queen.

The youngest candidate for Member of Parliament (MP) Lok Sabha 2014 Dr Arvind Kumar Singh

Though I really don't want to talk about politics and politicians on my blog, but as I said in my previous post, there are something which you can ignore but can't deny. Politics is the part and parcel of any nation and without politics, a nation may not exist at all. So, I selected one candidate who claims to be the youngest candidate for Member of Parliament (M.P) Lok Sabha 2014 from Aligarh constituency, as "Today's Indian People" Arvind Kumar Singh.

Arvind Kumar Singh was born on 7th November 1988, in Aligarh.

Singh currently is the Chancellor of Noida International University (NIU) and with this post in 2010, Singh became the world's youngest chancellor. Arvind had his schooling in India, moved to England (University of Leeds) for his masters degree in International business. He has been awarded with the Doctorate in Management for his work on “How personal evolution and development of leaders impact growth and success of their organizations.”

" Mother, I bow to thee!
Rich with thy hurrying streams,
bright with orchard gleams,
Cool with thy winds of delight,
Dark fields waving Mother of might,
Mother free.
Glory of moonlight dreams,
Over thy branches and lordly streams,

Padma Shri Arunachalam Muruganantham - Innovator of low cost sanitary napkins

Padma Shri Arunachalam Muruganantham born 1962 is a social entrepreneur from Coimbatore in Tamil Nadu, India.
Update: Bollywood Hindi Film "Pad Man" starred by Akshay Kumar is inspired by the true story of this man Arunachalam Muruganantham.

He is the inventor of a low-cost sanitary pad making machine and has innovated grass-roots mechanisms for generating awareness about traditional unhygienic practices around menstruation in rural India. He invented a set of machines which manufacture sanitary pads for women at a lower price and the best part is that he is employing women to make these pads, thus creating job opportunities for them. His mini-machines, which can manufacture sanitary pads for less than a third of the cost of commercial pads, have been installed in 23 of the 29 states of India. He is currently planning to expand the production of these machines to 106 nations. In 2014, TIME magazine placed him in its list of 100 Most Influential People in the World.
